R.I.P J Dilla

It’s been 5 years today since the great James Dewitt Yancey sadly passed. James, better known by his stage names J Dilla or Jay Dee, fought a two year battle with a rare blood disease called Lupus before leaving us just three days after his 32nd birthday.

I could write for hours about what Dilla achieved in such a short time but instead I will let his music speak for itself and showcase some of my favourite Dilla joints...
